US State Dept. Gone WIld

A 1970's photo of Ambassador Stevens and his "companion"

A Hill Buzz story alleges that one of the reasons Ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered and sodomized is because he was a homosexual.
The Serbian consulate employee identified himself to me as “Dino” and wouldn’t give me any more of a name than that, but told me it was no secret that Chris Stevens was gay and that “it was stupid to send him to Libya as the ambassador when he was a known homosexual”.

Dino explained in great detail that the brutal sodomizing of Stevens’ corpse was something that Muslims do to show the “utmost disrespect to the body” and that this is “a great insult in Islam” reserved for homosexuals. ”It is like making him a woman in death and he will be a woman now after life” the Serbian explained to me. There’s a good chance this guy was Muslim too, and gay, which makes my head spin more than a little since he seemed to have no anger at all in his voice that Muslims in Libya assassinated the American ambassador and then sodomized his corpse.

“He should not have gone there” was the general consensus from this man.
If this is true, it brings an interesting, albeit disturbing, side note to the situation. Why in the world would you send a known homosexual as your principal representative to a country whose national religion commands believers to kill homosexuals?
Qur'an (7:80-84) - "...For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds.... And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)"

Abu Dawud (4462) - The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Loot, execute the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.".

al-Tirmidhi, Sunan 1:152 - [Muhammad said] "Whoever is found conducting himself in the manner of the people of Lot, kill the doer and the receiver."

Reliance of the Traveller, p17.2 - "May Allah curse him who does what Lot's people did."
How would you answer questions regarding such a bone headed decision? The answer is ... they killed him because some nobody in California made a movie insulting Islam that few people have seen.  And we're not answering any more questions.

And Libya isn't the only country where the placement of a homosexual ambassador could be frowned upon. Bush 43 was also insensitive to the host country's belief system.
The appointment of Guest to serve in Romania showed a particular cultural insensitivity, given that the country is a stronghold of the conservative Eastern Orthodox Church.

Our source indicated that the Orthodox Church is represented at virtually all government ceremonies in Romania. One Romanian professor, in a letter to a Bucharest daily newspaper, said that "Romanians . . . cannot comprehend homosexual acts in any other way but as a deviation from the natural order and the world created by the Lord," and he noted that the Guest appointment "generates bewilderment, indignation, and disgust among the Romanians."

Romanian laws relating to homosexuality were recently liberalized, but only under coercion from the European Union, to which Romania hopes to gain entrance. Although Guest has denied he will promote a "gay agenda" as ambassador, his mere presence in Bucharest is already having that effect.
At least the Romanians didn't kill him. Seriously, if the guy's a fudgepacker, send him to Brussels.

"Fudge-packer," eh? That's a new one for this ol' country boy.

The Secretary of State is a woman. That is a huge affront, and not just to muslims here and again. If the admin wants to blame this on a movie then play coy about it they are more than burying their heads in the sand, casting the first stone, and such. Hey, but reaping the seeds one sows is the way it goes.

As for shoving the nose of muslims into "it", I have no problem with that part. Just don't then not guard those you put in the lion's den and on top of it try to wash your hands of it. As for me, I think homosexuality is as egregious as Romanians and muslims, I just don't kill them and then act like one with a corpse (or little boy, or big boy, or man). Further, I know that muslims have no room for hating gays. MANY of them could join NAMLA, easily.

If the Executive branch knew this, and thereby committed an insult to the Muhammedans, aren't they being disingenuous in their anger at the film maker?

Gorges - must be a Yankee thing.

Doom - the Afghanis love their dancing bois, eh? I guess as long as your "primary" sexual orientation is towards the opposite sex, Islam turns a deaf eye and a blind ear towards your secondary indiscretions.

Pewster - you are far too kind; disingenuous isn't quite strong enough, not by a long shot.

Doom said...

Bisexuals? Gah? American gays/lesbians hate those more than the rest of America supposedly hates gays/lesbians. hehe I swear to God, Satan has a hell of a sense of humor. I mean that in every way it can be taken.

Doom - you never cease to amaze me.

Arab lands are awash with sodomy which is why Morrocco was the destination of choice for queer Englishmen when it was illegal here.
